    My friend has shoulder wings, he has them sewn onto loops of fabric, then he has a strip of fabric sewn onto his shirt at one end and a button at the other end so he can slide the winds on and off for washing the shirt. Hope this helps.

          detail

          In response to shoulder feathers;
          4 or 5 grouped together, kindof like a flat fan arrangement. The ends contained sewn onto a cloth, the cloth folded over, kindof like a sandwich. A rosette can be added to this cloth on top for each shoulder.
          To attach them to your cape, you can use heavy duty industrial velcro. I always make sure to add additional safety from falling, by attaching a leather cord from my cape tied around the base grouping of the feathers.
          The detachable button method as described earlier is also good.

            When making shoulder wings would you use tail feathers or some sort of wing feathers? How far should they hang over you shoulder? I'm working on a new regalia and was wanting to incorporate them into my design but few if any traditional dancers out here use them and I dont know the proper set-up for them. Thanks for any help provided.
